Did you get a satisfactory resolution? I had a repair tech come out yesterday with the intention of replacing the screen and power board. Field tech noticed an in-screen discoloration and uncentralized overheating along the entire bottom bezel, but after doing a FaceTime equivalent of a review over the phone with a non-field tech, the non-field tech claimed the discoloration was from cleaning the screen, ignoring or not even referencing the heat. Now I'd buy that if it truly looked like damage to the screen was external, splotchy, or if it was something I actually did on a regular basis, but the issue is clearly coming from a burn in effect behind the screen and the overheating is occurring along the bottom bezel. The discoloration is a perfectly straight line along the entire heat path about a half inch from the bottom. The hottest parts are about 3-4" from both corners and the tv isn't even warm to the touch on any other edge. I've seen pictures of their tvs melting in similar spots. I can't even get through a movie before it's hot. Let alone when Stanger Things next season comes out. I don't want this thing to light up when I'm not home either. Did you have similar issues before it melted? Any feedback would be great.
